of the right cause party he's planning to win seats in december's parliamentary elections and he's told r.t. he eventually wants to be prime minister in this exclusive interview with you go to . he is a successful businessman one of the wealthiest in the world also a big sports fan the owner of the jersey nets and nell the leader of the right cause political party which is aiming to become russia's second most powerful political force i'm joined by me. why does such a successful businessman like you want to get into politics. you know when you achieve personal success when you know this country well any normal person in my position would have a desire to do something for other people there's a mechanism for that and it's called politics who people have to deal with politics when they go to polling stations there's also the job of
a professional politician and so i've made a decision to become a professional politician to help the citizens of this country to live better writer but i don't support let's talk about some of russia's biggest problems start corruption annually sucks in nearly one third of g.d.p. according to some calculations half of business spending is on kickbacks and bribes as a representative of business would you agree with these figures and what can be done to improve the situation you know. this is a well known fact these figures are unlikely to surprise anybody i think that our main problem is that the old model has exhausted its potential for development we should suggest a new model of political and economic development a new audiology a new everything this new model should produce a new effect i know how we should do that and we are going to explain it to every russian in our party program in a very simple way but does the right cause party have the resources to develop this new political model i think that even opportunity emerges to bring it home to our
citizens what you deem necessary this chance cannot be missed the motto of who us can do it but me is very urgent at the moment. is it possible to do business in russia would. well and having close ties with those in power you know you need to have some connections to do business in any country everything depends on the measure of these connections to a greater or minor degree big business always has more ties and connections we are like the rest of the world in this respect. where would you put the level of corruption in russia on a ten point scale the level of corruption is high and it permeates practically all spheres of life for our people i think that we've inherited this corruption in the former u.s.s.r. it was more widespread at that time in order to buy meat it was necessary to make friends with butchers in order to buy nice clothes it was necessary to have friendly ties with shop directors in the market economy this has become
a thing of the past but a new kind of corruption has appeared everything linked to people's daily life is corrupt everybody talks about that we understand how we should tackle this problem russia's economy is still deeply dependent on natural resources and their export obviously this is a dead end is an innovation beast economy possible in russia and what needs to be done to build it i think you should put this question a bit wider what competitive advantages does this country have compared to other countries we should develop them apart from our oil and gas sector we are also a great transit power that we don't build roads railroads or normal airports but we can link together two parts of the globe like europe and china we have unique human resources which have been underused and we're planning to focus our efforts exactly on the human potential. what's your take on russia's judicial system can it be
called independent and what's your opinion on me for that of course he's second criminal case i think that our judicial system is imperfect just because of the mere fact that we don't comply with the constitution our constitution has a provision. in about the administrative court but it's been shelved for twelve years it's the administrative court that's supposed to defend our citizens if a citizen doesn't like a directive issued by a bureaucrat he can turn to an administrative court for help if you're a prat in turn to prove that his directive is in line with the law today a bureaucrat takes no responsibility this is a problem that needs to be tackled by did minister to of caught the second thing is linked to hold a kosky the law is a law irrespective of whether it's good or bad all of us are obliged to stick to this law if there are faults in it it's the task of a political party to suggest amendments even this imperfect law implies a procedure called early release on parole i personally think there are no grounds
to deny the eleven day of their right to be released early on parole. by the last ten years or the construction of a massive vertical while of power meaning of the regions privileges have been moved to moscow for example the election of regional governors was cancelled in your opinion does such a system meet more and the mend. only a system that can answer one simple question easily can be considered to match modern reality and problem should be solved wherever emerges our system of government doesn't meet that criteria at the moment. it's well known that you have close ties to both with the kremlin and the government but the right cause party can be considered opposition even though you asked others to forget this term nevertheless the policies you want to put forward or different from those of the current political force in the west this is just a different model
a different vision the united russia party is a political monopoly and we will be fighting all kinds of monopolies whether political natural spiritual or economic with competition. but do you think your ideas may become a problem for your interests having such close ties with those in power. i believe every development model comes from the inside correspondingly this is my conviction and therefore i will be proposing that so reticent where do you see yourself running for president in the future but. i'm not the kind of person he tends to dream or plunge into illusions we have particular goals to get into russia's lower house of parliament with the maximum number of votes but i also understand is that i could be a good prime minister if the party successful i would fight for this position. which here's a question on a totally different issue our audience is quite international as the owner of the new jersey nets can you shed some light on what awaits the team this year any
surprises me would. seem will be consolidating we have a clear plan and we're not going to give up this plan and i've announced time and time again that within four years we will become champions. another line political question about your might be it's reported there is already a five year waiting list for the score is ten years. eddie even ten so it's a tremendous success even though the core is not being produced and most people haven't seen these cars in real life is there also interest from abroad and hell do you evaluate russia's core market in general but. i'm really happy to see such great demand for the new russian car our people want to see something new in russian so we must meet their expectations as well russia's automotive industry i think is now following the traditional way trying to get modern western makes into the country localization of any western car broadens the gap by seven or eight
years this is why we chose a different way make an entirely new car based on a new concept we need to be able to move forwards in time past the point of innovation and that's what innovators take risks for us. is it possible to make parallels between the your might be and the right cause party do you expect the party to be as popular as the score among the people from i mean i wouldn't have gone into politics if i didn't think so. thank you very much thank you. seventy six hours of intense fighting. six thousand dead at a beach front battlefields several kilometers long. and now there is only one
person who cares. you see we are surrounded by garbage everywhere but also there are. on this beach which of course is the most appropriate city signification a symbol of everything that's wrong with our goddamn government allowing not only garbage but to accumulate where so many guys died. a new battle is going on. will the history be protected. return to terra what julian cooper story on our t.v. . today children play war in the old case me. but in june nine hundred forty one these walls when the first barrier feminazi
